Simple luxury with a European flair
The hotel lobby, restaurants and bar had an inviting atmosphere and modern decor. The staff were friendly and helpful. My room was sensibly laid out, immaculate and well appointed. Savvy travelers probably wouldn't dine in the restaurant (which is expensive) given the great food choices in Chicago. However, choosing to dine in, although there were more unfamiliar choices than not on the French menu, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, the portions, and the obvious pride of the wait staff. It you want to try something different without sacrificing comfort and amenities, this is the hotel for you.
